Giacometti-Chadwick, Facing Fear

Lynn Chadwick

Giacometti-Chadwick, Facing Fear at Museum de Fundatie, Netherlands brings together the sculptures of Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) and Lynn Chadwick (1914-2003). 

The artists' sculptures are manifestations of the sense of fear and disillusionment that pervaded Europe during the Cold War period. Their work bids a final farewell to pre-war romanticism and aestheticism, and lands with both feet in the raw reality of the post-war world. While Giacometti reduced the human form to its bare essentials, Chadwick created powerful archetypal images of both people and animals. The exhibition will include more than 150 works. Never before has the work of Giacometti and Chadwick been so explicitly brought together.

Giacometti-Chadwick, Facing Fear is at Museum de Fundatie, Netherlands from 22 September 2018 – 6 January 2019
